AI for Reducing Food Waste

Challenge Completed!

A global team of 50 AI change-makers collaborated in this high-impact 2-month challenge to reduce food waste.


The Problem

One-third of all food produced globally is wasted. Contributing to 10% of all greenhouse gases. Reducing food waste is the single greatest action we can take to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

By giving kitchens full visibility of their food waste, we allow them to see what they’re wasting and how to make changes to their preparation, production, and purchasing habits to reduce it. This will allow companies that serve food to drastically reduce the impact they have on the planet.


The Project Goals

We would like to be able to tell the weight of what goes in the bin using just a camera with a scanner.


Why join? The uniqueness of Omdena AI Challenges

A collaborative experience you never had in your working life! For the next eight weeks, you will not only build AI solutions to make a real-world impact but also go through an entire data science project lifecycle. This covers problem scoping, data collection, and preparation, as well as modeling for deployment.

And the best part is that you will join a global and collaborative team of changemakers. Omdena AI Challenges are not a competition or hackathon but a real-world project that will take your experience of what is possible through collaboration to a new level.
